With AutoMonitor, you can see live images and sounds from your car or your apartment directly from any web browser or from your mobile phone. If the AutoMonitor camera is located in an area with 3G+ (HSDPA/HSUPA) coverage, you can see live video at the maximum quality.

The system keeps recorded video for up to 40 hours. Video can be transferred to a computer for long time storage or future viewing.

Vehicles equipped with AutoMonitor cameras can be positioned without an additional GPS system through the use of fleet management services based on cell tower locations. A GPS-enabled version of the AutoMonitor Pro camera is planned for later this year.

No special software is needed on the computers used to view the camera stream, the only requirement is an Internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari) and the Quicktime Player.
